The Jackson County Farmers Market will be celebrating their annual Taste of the Market this coming Saturday August 16th from 9AM to noon. Vendors will provide samples, recipes and demonstrations. We will be having a Tomato Tasting Contest from 10 – noon using a variety of tomatoes grown by our very own vendors. Customers will get a chance to vote on the most flavorful, the best texture and the most interesting in appearance. Right next door at Bridge Park, Jackson County Cooperative Extension is celebrating the 100th anniversary of Cooperative Extension programs. They will have educational booths, historical photographs, music, clogging and tomato sandwiches. The market accepts SNAP, Credit and Debit – swipe your card at the Information Booth in exchange for tokens.
